NATIONAL SCRAPBOOK DAY
Each year on the first Saturday in May, National Scrapbook Day is observed. Also known as National Scrapbooking Day, this day will gather thousands of people all over the country to celebrate with scrapbooking parties and share their talents with others. Scrapbooking dates back to the 15th century.
As per Wikipedia: “Scrapbooking is a method for preserving personal and family history in the form of a scrapbook. Typical memorabilia include photographs, printed media, and artwork. Scrapbook albums are often decorated and frequently contain extensive journaling. Scrapbooking is a widely practiced pastime in the United States.”
Scrapbooking is a hobby of preserving memories and at the same time it provides a strong social network. ”Scrappers”, as they are called, get together and scrapbook at each others homes, local scrapbook stores, scrapbooking conventions, retreat centers and have even gone on cruises. Together they share tips and ideas and enjoy the social outlet.
The scrapbooking industry doubled in size between 2001 and 2004
Happy Scrapping Everyone!
